Generous donors make the Brennan Center’s work possible. Our country’s problems can only be met by a fundamental revitalization of our systems of government - regardless of the political party in charge. The Brennan Center has a plan to repair our nation’s dysfunctional elections and to address America’s broken promise of equal justice for all. With your generous support we can seize this moment and lead the charge to restore our democracy.

The Brennan Center is eager to partner with individuals who are interested in developing public interest fellowships, including Equal Justice Works, Skadden, and school-based fellowships, such as the Liman Fellowship. We also sponsor the George A. Katz Fellowship, which provides the opportunity for a recent graduate of New York University School of Law to spend two years as a staff attorney at the Brennan Center for Justice. The Fellowship is generously funded by the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in honor of George A. Katz, an alumnus of the law school and a founding partner of the firm.
